Let’s Play Garlic

Garlic is grown over most of the planet and is deeply rooted in cultures throughout the world. It grows well, even for those with a black thumb, and is exciting for children as young as 2 to participate in the garlic process.

Join garlic educator Dennis Donahue for a workshop that will provide you with the basic knowledge to successfully plant this October and harvest next July to the amazement of family and friends!

All participants will be able to take home a bulb of garlic to plant this fall.

Preschool Storytime

Join Miss Sandy on Wednesdays at 9:30 am for some fun stories, songs, and other early literacy activities.

Story time will be starting again on September 20th and will run on Wednesdays when school is in session.

Book Lovers’ Ball Author Tom Wilber

This year’s Book Lovers’ Ball author is Tom Wilber, author of Vanishing Point- The Search for a B-24 Bomber Crew Lost on the World War II Home Front.

In Vanishing Point, award-winning journalist and author Tim Wilber pieces together the largely forgotten story of the bomber, Getaway Gertie, and an eclectic group of enthusiasts who have spent years search for it.

Wilber’s quest for the little-known story of Getaway Gertie was inspired by summer evenings around the campfire on the shores of Lake Ontario, where parts of the plane washed up. Building on those campfire tales, he deftly connects myth with fact and memory with historicity.

Books will be available for sale and there will be a book signing.
